delicious words

•July 11, 2015 • Leave a Comment

So I taped a magazine photo into my physical journal (as opposed to this digital one) this morning, and grooved on the photo of food so much that I was inspired to write down a list of everything in the photo. I found the process of simply writing those words to be as good as having that pile of deliciousness in front of me, ready to cook.


And you’d imagine my pleasure when six hours later, I read my favorite food columnist Jean Sanders’ ‘Food Friday’ column from yesterday. She did the same thing! Check it out here.

…with a boat ride/fishing/takeout crabcakes n’ slaw from #ChesapeakeLanding and enjoyed abundant perch/osprey/birds/humid southerly winds/lotsa tiny rockfish/one wacky little westie, and the sounds/scents of the #ChesapeakeBay. So lucky, and so cool.

Thank Youniverse!!!

Overnight, spiders slung thin strands from one bed to the other; I missed one morning in the garden and they’ve surrounded it. I walk out with coffee to birdsong and a muggy breeze. Fuzzy bees silently pollinating on this warm Maryland morning. Zip cheerfully skips around, eager, ready to go.

Food Friday: Meet Jean Sanders

•June 12, 2015 • 1 Comment


Jean pens my absolute favorite weekly column: Food Friday, found in the Talbot and Chestertown Spy online newspapers. If I had the time / talent / connections, I’d be her agent and get her column syndicated nationally – everyone should have access to this! Terrific writing, food ideas, and her links? Yumsters!

Here’s today’s column:   http://talbotspy.org/food-friday-picnic-season/
